I had to count up the number of days that I have been self quarantining. Today is day 23.
Although in Atlanta we have been on a shelter at home order for awhile, I don't think people were completely taking it serious. When I look out my living room window I can see the tops of the cars going by on my normally busy street. Traffic did not seem to be much different.
Friday night a shelter in place went into effect for all of Georgia. This weekend when I looked out my window there were very few cars going past.
My older daughter who also lives on a very busy street said people were actually walking down the middle of her street in order to maintain social distancing.
I am glad to see people taking it seriously. It is how we will slow the spread of the illness.
The weather here was gorgeous all weekend and it is so hard to stay inside my apartment. I am trying to limit leaving it to two times a week. Friday was one of my two days last week and I was able to walk around the grounds of my apartment complex taking some photographs and enjoying the sunshine.
Today I am going downstairs to pick up my mail and while I am down there I am going to ask about the garden spaces. I want to order some veggie plants, but I need to know which space I am getting. I think gardening will be a good outside activity and it will provide some fresh veggies this summer.
I'm hoping the garden center I go to is open for pickup. I am not sure what is considered essential, but I know a couple of weeks ago they were open for people to call in and then they would bring what you ordered out to your car.
I haven't been anywhere for over three weeks so I am sure it will seem strange if I drive somewhere. In the meantime I need to research what I want to grow this year. No tomatoes for sure. I have no interest in feeding tomatoes to the squirrels and I have had to lay off tomatoes because my GERD has been acting up since I have been in quarantine.
This is my new look. Rather attractive don't you think?
I am really looking forward to the day this is behind us.
